Film description

This film eludes all categories and description - and this time this is not just a catchy slogan. A small village in Hungary, a long summer day. A mole is digging underground, a fisherman is catching a giant catfish, a woman is riding a bike, a cat is rolling in the grass, a policeman is searching for a missing man, a boar is impregnating a sow, a mother is weaving, a grandfather is hiccupping. And all this with hardly any words or music. An ethnographic documentary? A portrait of a village? A detective story? Montage of associations and analogies? A fairy-tale of sounds, colours, smells? All of them in one. The most extraordinary debut of the 21st century was possible only in Hungary, where the state continues to support formal experiments and the traditions of Béla Tarr and Gábor Bódy are still strong. The editing itself is subjected here to the logic of associations - motion, shape, sound, place. You can even find plywood on radiograph plates or short food chains! The very careful cinematography and soundtrack are mixed with absurd humour and suspense caused by the dark secret hidden by the villagers. The film offers an open field for analysis and interpretation by the audience. Who killed whom? Who ate whom? What is the result? A small and yet great piece of cinema, incomparable to anything else.
